Banyan Air Service’s Aircraft Maintenance Department recently held its 6th annual chili cook-off and it did not disappoint! 18 crock pots full of homemade, secret recipe chili awaited our judges who carefully critiqued each according to the following guidelines:

  • Appearance
  • Consistency
  • Aroma
  • Taste

This year’s chili included red, white, black bean and everything in-between. Some were easy on the tongue while others made your eyes water. In the end, three chili dishes stood out above the rest with only one point separating first and second place.

Congratulations to this year’s winners:

  1. Missy Bertrand
  2. David Sylvester
  3. Craig Smith
